AOptix, a technology innovation company that applies optics to transform identity verification and wireless communication, has appointed Scott Clark as the company’s VP of Operations.
This new appointment comes one month after AOptix reorganized its company into two separate units: Identity Solutions and Communications. In his new position as VP of Operations, Clark will be responsible for procurement, manufacturing, supply chain, logistics and customer support across AOptix’s two core businesses.
“Scott joins AOptix at an exciting time,” Dean Senner, Chairman and CEO of AOptix said. “We recently announced major new deployments of our identity verification systems and we’re gearing up to introduce groundbreaking new products in both our Identity Solutions and Communications businesses. Scott’s extensive experience leading global operations for complex technologies, including data networking products, will benefit the company as our growth rate accelerates.”
AOptix’s Identity Solutions business unit has deployed iris-based identity verification products at some of the world’s busiest airports and border crossings and introduced Smart Mobile Identity. In August, the firm raised $42M in a new round of venture funding to enhance its biometric offerings.
Prior to joining AOptix, Clark was VP of Operations at Arecont Vision, a provider of IP-based MegaPixel security cameras. Clark also has run global operations for publicly traded companies such as Opnext, Inc and Allied Telesis and has directly managed factories in China and Singapore.
“AOptix is solving complex, global challenges that no one else has been able to solve,” Clark said. “I look forward to supporting the company’s growth and leading a team committed to the highest standards for quality and efficiency.”
